Dave Crosby, who does a lot for Colton with and through the town’s Tourism & Beautification Committee, created a family-oriented Spooky Town Train to delight his neighbors as well as the public this Halloween season. It features haunted buildings, lights, and sounds as well as trains running through the ghostly countryside. Photo submitted by Ruth McWilliams.

COLTON — Dave Crosby of Colton is sharing his passion for fun and interesting train layouts with the public again this year in lead up to Halloween.

His family-oriented “Spooky Town Trai”n display, which occupies a good part of his two-car garage, focuses on fun, not fright so people of all ages can enjoy it.

The public is invited, free of charge, to his place at 29 Riverside Dr. in Colton on Mondays, Tuesdays, and Thursdays from 6 to 7 p.m. starting Oct. 15 and ending Oct. 30. Visitors should look for a sign posted at the end of the driveway leading to the garage with the train exhibit.

After this year Dave is hoping his extensive display, which can be broken down into segments, will find a new home so he can reclaim his garage. Anyone interested in all or parts of the display should plan to stop by and talk with Dave about options. He also can be reached by calling 315-212-0674.
